‚ÄčThoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)


If prayer depends on how I pray, I’m sunk. But if the power of prayer depends on the One who hears the prayer, I have hope.  —Max Lucado

There are a good many problems before the American people today, and before me as President, but I expect to find the solution of those problems just in the proportion that I am faithful in the study of the Word of God.  I ask every man and woman... that from this day on they will realize that part of the destiny of America lies in their daily perusal of this great book.  —Woodrow Wilson, 28th President

COURAGE is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.  —C. S. Lewis

You know, Willie Wonka said it best: “We are the makers of dreams, the dreamers of dreams.”  We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we’re too sophisticated as adults, as a nation.  We stopped dreaming.  We should always have dreams.  –Herb Brooks

You have to know what pro hockey is about.  You have to live and breathe and sleep it.  You have to lose a few teeth and take some shots to the face.  It’s not a pretty thing.  –Ted Nolan

There is no room in your mind for negative thoughts.  The busier you keep yourself with the particulars of shot assessment and execution, the less chance your mind has to dwell on the emotional.  This is sheer intensity.  –Jack Nicklaus

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently… A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.  --Henry Ford: Founder of the Ford Motor Company

You don’t need to have a 100-person company to develop that idea  --Larry Page: Co-Founder of Google, from a 2001 Business Week article.

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.  --Warren Buffett: Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, from a 2011 story in The Guardian.

We hold our heads high, despite the price we have paid, because freedom is priceless.  --Lech Walesa

Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils.  --General John Stark

Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.  --Abraham Lincoln

Michael Oher: “I’ve never had one before.”  Leigh Anne Tuohy: “What? A room to yourself?”  Michael Oher: “A bed.”  —-Blindside, the book and movie

I am still learning.  —Michelangelo

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.  —Albert Einstein
